The Kangaroo on Command is a powerup that allows the player's car to jump. Its use is quite simple, but mastering it can be hard. Pressing the item key will make the car jump at a height of about 3 times a pedestrian's height. When the jump is initiated, all moving/spinning momentum is kept and cannot be changed in mid-air. The player should take these aspects in mind before jumping. This powerup is crucial for reaching certain areas in some locations.

It's also worth noting that the player can also jump while in the air. This means that, if done correctly, the player can reach huge heights. The best way to do that is to pull off a big amount of Kangaroo on Commands quickly. This is because the vertical momentum is also taken into consideration. Likewise, if a jump is used while falling, it'll negate some of the downward momentum.
